Quoting .shank.:If you are separated with the intent to divorce I don't see an issue with it.
Quoting hautemama83:Depends on why you're separated. If its with intentions of working on your marriage, then no. But if its the end of things and the divorce just isn't final, then I don't see the big deal.
Quoting art.diva:It really, really depends on the individual situations. Some people are "separated" while knowing their spouse wants to reconcile. And others have been separated (even living in different states) for months to years, and truly trying to get a divorce.
if you're planning on working it out and it's only a short term seperation, it's not OK.If you're seperated and in the process of getting a divorce, it's not OK, just wait for it to be finalized. You've got enough going on in your life, you don't need to add dating to the mix.
However, my mom's boyfriend has been seperated from his wife for over 10 years. Not sure WHY she won't sign the papers, but whatever. After that freakin long it's whatever. However, my mom and him have been together for a year now and she's really getting uncomfortable with him still being 'married.' ...But I think this divorce process is actually moving along now.
